A day out at the coast gives you a good excuse to get your camera out of its bag. It doesn't matter if you're going on a family day-trip or with a group of fellow photographers as you'll be able to capture a decent amount of imagery with whoever you go with, although your family probably won't want to see you looking down your view finder all of the time!

In this article, we list 14 popular photography tutorials which are all about taking photos at the coast as well as offer some advice on what gear you might want to consider packing next time you head for the beach.

Gear Choices:

  • Camera – Compacts to DSLRs are fine. 
  • Camera Bag - Protect your gear from sand and sea salt when you're not using it. For quick access to gear, consider using a sling style bag, such as the Professional Sling 50 from Manfrotto, where gear can be easily reached without taking the bag off. This means you can keep your gear tucked away from blowing sand and sea salt but can still quickly take out your camera when a shot presents itself. 
  • Tripod – Something lightweight and portable which will fit easily into the car, even if it's full of buckets, spades, picnic items and whatever else a family takes with them on a day trip to the coast is advised. 
  • Hurricane blower and lens cloth – Make sure your lens is free of sea spray and keep grains of sand out.
